New journals. There’s something pretty exciting about an unbroken spine and one hundred empty white pages. There’s always so much hope in new, fresh, clean things. The same goes for the journal. But if you are one of those people who have trouble putting your pen to that first page, trust me- you’re not alone. The need to write that initial “profound something” always seems to weigh heavy on my shoulders. Opening the cover and writing about a mediocre day would never do. I’m a little embarrassed to say that I remember my teenage years when I’d address this little book as if it were a living, breathing new best-friend.
“Hi there! I’m your new owner, Aaren!”
I find myself in that same spot with this electronic piece of paper. If you’ve ever had a dream, I trust that you’ll understand when I say that this blog, this website is a dream come true. Over two years in the making, through blood, sweat and tears- it lives! And I have to tell you, I’m beyond excited for what this “bit of earth” will hold within its pages for you all in 2014. So, let’s just go there, shall we?
“Hi there! I’m Aaren. I’m SO GLAD you’re here!”
Adventure is out there, and I cannot wait to embark on this journey with you. :)
